Abelson Legal Search


Abelson Legal Search is the top boutique legal recruiting firm with long-standing personal access to highly credentialed attorneys and paralegals across the Mid-Atlantic States. Since 1990, we’ve distinguished ourselves as a premier legal search firm, as a relationship builder understanding our clients, and skilled at finding the right legal talent. Our clients and candidates know and trust us for permanent and temporary/contract placements of attorneys and paralegals in PA, NJ and DE. The readers of Philadelphia’s top legal publication, The Legal Intelligencer, have voted us “Best Philadelphia Legal Recruiter” every year since voting began in 2010. We differ from other recruiters because we listen.

We successfully:

• recruit and place highly skilled attorneys and paralegals in all legal specialties and with all levels of experience;

• work with law firms of all types and sizes, from AmLaw 50 firms to boutiques to sole practitioners;

• meet the complex needs of corporate legal departments at Fortune 50 to start-up companies;

• provide direct (permanent) hires, temporary (contract) hires, temp-to-perm and project placement in every possible legal specialty;

• promote firm mergers, practice group acquisitions and all types of lateral placements;

• respond to staffing requests nationally, but with demonstrated specialization in the tri-state area.

We differ from other recruiters because we:

• identify top, “passive” legal talent, those not currently seeking new positions, actively recruiting on clients’ behalf;

• have a team of dedicated recruiters with specialized expertise conducting comprehensive, client-focused legal searches;

• provide responsive, personalized, confidential work for client and candidates, getting to know the wants and needs of each;

• maintain an extensive, proprietary data base of skilled professionals and legal opportunities.

As members of the National Association of Legal Search Consultants (“NALSC”), we adhere strictly to the NALSC Code of Ethics.
